Who Will Speak For Planet Earth?---Carl Sagan
Why you, of course. In order to bring ourselves into accord with Nature, everyone must get involved with environmentalism, not just environmental groups and our governments. The purpose of this web page to offer concrete actions that each person can do in their daily lives promote the health of this planet at the grassroots level. The goal of this site is to provide examples of all the ways the Internet is going to play a major role in environmentalism.

|Hot list (great sites to visit)|
The Philosophical Stuff: Trying to change my own attitudes towards Nature is for me the most difficult and yet what I believe to be the most important part of environmentalism. This page provides my journal links, fundamental environmental concepts, those who I consider to be the great environmentalists, and a listing of sites where philosophical ideas about the environment are shared.
The Local Stuff: Rochester, New York has a wide variety of environmental web sites which offer a lot of information and services. If you live in this area, check them out. If you don't, use these sites as examples of the kind of local environmental information your community does or should have.
The Linking Stuff: As an ordinary citizen, I hope this page furthers the benefits of cyberspace by helping link those who care about the environment with as much information as the Internet provides.
The Practical Stuff: This is the meat and potatoes of Green Solitaire for it is the Internet connection to all the documents and pages pertaining to specific actions individuals can do to help our planet.
Kids Stuff: Our children will inherit this planet. What condition will the health of Earth be in when they grow up? It's important that kids learn from an early age how to help protect, manage, and love Earth. This area has been especially designed to help kids learn about our environment.

Please take a moment to communicate. It's not only great to get feedback from those who visit this site, it's an important element of environmentalism. You won't get ignored here. Until everyone on the planet starts making changes in the way we treat Nature, the changes that do occur won't have much affect on the overall health of our planet. With your feedback, I can determine how best to help make the Internet one of the most valuable resources for environmentalism. Environmentalism isn't just a hobby, an interest, or a vocation: It's the air you breath, the ground you're standing on, and the water you drink. You may disagree on how some of our environmental concerns should be solved, but you certainty are a part of Nature, regardless of what you think of the environmental movement.
